Re: First time at the track!

BTW ... (and I hate to be the one to say this) you really should be wearing pants and a helmet when drag racing.

Nobody was wearing a helmet until they ran a 13.5... I'll wear pants next time, I wasn't even planning on running last night. But thanks

Yeah, I think that's pretty standard but I always wear a helmet when I go. Cheap insurance from a concussion in case the worst happens. I just wanted to give you a heads up since some tracks are really strict and will throw you out if you run 13.5 and didn't have a helmet on.

It's worth it every time. Can save your *** if **** goes south. Even I you're running 14 second quarters I would wear a helmet.

Oh okay This track is pretty relaxed about everything.

They're having an event in a couple months (on my birthday!) called Modern Muscle Shootout. I'm super excited

I know! I've gotten the guy with the Boss, a friend's friend with an SS, an a friend with a Vette to go. I'm psyched.

Good luck glad to see you got a chance to get out there and have some fun Mandy. A couple more runs and you will get where you want to be and if u really enjoy doing it you may look into a stall converter especially since it isn't ur daily driver.

Re: First time at the track!

13.5 at 109.29 mph all five passes at Silverdollar Race Way, Reynalds Ga, two weeks ago.

Ran great all the way down the track...
I tried each mode, Auto/ advance trac on then off...
Sport/ Advance on and off....
Same results, 13's and 109-110mph.

Going wait till I get all my moods in the mail, before I make the big jump and put my steeda tune in...

BTW...great job, Mandy...its always great to see a female out there on the track..showing the boys hows it done...

Red.....

Good job I imagine with that many runs you are getting more comfortable behind the wheel. Did u do it with your cowgirl hat on?

No joke. I think 11.50 is cage territory and that's pretty easy to get to on these cars

My local 1/8 mile said 7.5 for a cage i got my 5.0 down to 7.7 before i traded but they defiantly have the potential...with the right tires and setup along with great conditions 7.5 would def be a possibility...i was only running, roush cai, tune, 3.73 gears, and mickey Thompson drag radials.... It was also an auto..so now you know that good times are possible with minor mods

What is the formula from 1/8 to 1/4? It's obviously a lot closer than 1:2, is it just a few more seconds for the 1/4 mile?

This is pretty close but theres no exact science to it because some cars are alot quicker in the back half and others are only a little quicker

Re: First time at the track!

Again, on street tires a good goal is a 2.0 60' foot. for every .1 you knock off the tenth you gain about .2 in the end. So as is, if you would be around 13.0 or 12.99 with a 2.0 60' and quick shifting. Heat and all. The 5.0 is 12s out of the box. Enjoy it. I just spent about 6k to be marginally quicker than a STOCK 5.0 lol
